Your business no doubt recognises opportunities to transform how you compete, and deliver superior customer experiences using digital technologies.
It's a rapidly changing world, but the digital story for many midsize and larger organisations is of frustration, failed projects, disjointed shadow IT and security risks. Meanwhile, nimbler entrants innovate and capture market share.
Crimson's business transformation consultancy breaks the cycle of failure. We unite your people, processes, and technology to leap the digital hurdle, helping you build a competitive advantage and solve the tough business problems.
Transformation consultants driving change in all the right places
Crimson focuses on the areas of your business where the Microsoft platform has the most significant impact. We help you deploy quicker and use agile techniques that give you the confidence to move forward swiftly with your IT projects. Of course, we do the same with your broader business transformation programme.
A. Continuous digital innovation
We work with you to embed our skills and knowledge so you capitalise on Microsoft’s platform investment and prove its return on investment.
We support you in delivering an enterprise-wide customer relationship management strategy so that excellent customer experience and the resulting data sit at the heart of your organisation and its decision-making.
From process automation, app integrations, self-serve portals, chatbots and simple one-task mobile apps, Crimson supports you in cutting errors and costs. We help you digitise repetitive, time-intensive tasks so your team can move up the value chain.
Data, data everywhere, but not a drop to drink. Crimson helps you clarify, cleanse and connect your data silos to unlock the insights, make smarter decisions and lay the groundwork for the power of machine learning.
How to embed continuous digital transformation - so you control your future
In the brave new world of digital, not only is every company a technology company, they are also a product company: your products are the apps you deploy to digitise your business. Yet few have the skills and ways of working to keep pace with innovations from software vendors and the ideas inside your company.
Crimson has the experience, tools and talent to help you pivot; ultimately, you become the sole owners and enablers of your continuous digital transformation programme.
What team, skills, recruitment strategy, stakeholders, governance and structure do you need to support success and stay ahead?

How does all this technology fit together, and what's the roadmap? Crimson’s solution architecture expertise helps you join the dots and provide the vision to begin turning ideas into value.
